Beta Analytic is one of the sponsors of this year’s Interdisciplinary Forum on Human Origins: Behavior, Environment and Technology (HOBET) currently held in Liverpool, UK. The three-day event hosted by the University of Liverpool’s Department of Archaeology, Classics, and Egyptology ends January 28, 2012.
Themes for this year’s conference include: (a) Human evolution in Europe: Archaeology and behavior, (b) Cognition and language, (c) African palaeoclimate and geochronology, (d) Lithic analysis and the origins of early technology, (e) Faunal exploitation strategies in the palaeolithic, and (f) Human responses to climate change: demography, migration, and symbolism.
HOBET was created by five leading UK research institutions specializing in the study of the archaeology of human origins. The forum aims to bring together academics from archaeology, anthropology, geography, environmental sciences, evolutionary psychology, anatomy, and the biological sciences to discuss and debate key issues concerning the origin of the Homo sapiens.
Aside from the University of Liverpool, the other founding institutions include the University of Sheffield, Cambridge University, Oxford University, and the University of Southampton. The founding institutions take turns in hosting HOBET each year featuring sessions that reflect their research interests. The 2013 HOBET will be hosted by Cambridge University.
Beta Analytic would like to thank HOBET organizer Ms. Sally Hoare for her assistance in the display and distribution of the company’s advertising materials at the event.
